New Cedar Window Installed

It was a pleasure having Dan work in our home. His attention to detail was amazing and he offered really good practical advice. He showed up on time and cleaned up after himself which is normally unheard of these days He was very easy to talk to and he explained things in layman's terms so I could fully understand what he was doing and why. He was totally professional and I had no qualms about leaving him alone in my home or even giving him a key. I would highly recommend Dan Sothern as a builder and will be using him in the future for further building jobs.

We are very happy with the work Dan carried out on our kitchen and lounge renovation. Dan assisted us from start to finish, he projected managed the build for us with out a hitch. All the trades people he arranged, arrived on time as promised and did a great job. Dan is easy to deal with, very honest and helpful. His estimates left us with no nasty surprises and we were thrilled with the finished product. Dan is a perfectionist in his work and we would be happy to recommend him for further building work.

Kitchen Renovation & Interior Alterations

Dan was fantastic to hire and patient with my questions. He is very knowledgeable and provided advice on a number of options for completing the job. What I found especially good was that he managed the sub contractors for us to complete other specialist work. The job was to replace a post holding up the corner of our house and re configure an existing drain near the new post. Dan kept us informed throughout the process. We have a lively 5 year old, so we were happy that he kept the work area tidy and safe both during and after the the job was finished. We are planning our next jobs and Built Rite will be our first point of call. Thanks Dan.

Building Structure Repair

We had a shower that needed to be replaced due to the previous owner making some dodgy repairs. We purchased a new shower unit at a trade sale and needed a builder to rebuild the shower box and install it. Dan did a fantastic job for us, he gave us a quote we could understand at a fair price. He managed the other trades people for us, the tiler, painter, plumber and the shower installer. He took the time to keep us informed and kept the mess to a minimum. We take pride in our home and its nice to work with someone who takes pride in their work and does a great job. I would recommend Dan to anyone looking for a good builder.

Shower Renovation Project

I cannot recommend Dan highly enough. After experiencing so many tradesman who did not call back or turn up, it was refreshing to meet someone so professional. Not only did Dan respond quickly to my initial inquiry, but came on the same day and time he said he would. I found him reliable and an excellent communicator, keeping me informed from start to finish. The repairs to my deck and stairs were completed to a high standard and within the expected time frame and budget. The completed job looks fantastic.

New Deck

We found Dan from Built Rite Construction reliable, exceptionally tidy, friendly, accommodating and organised! Dan undertook the first of our newly purchased house renovation projects - our bathroom. His quality workmanship saw a tired and dated separate toilet and existing bathroom rebuilt into an amazing new combined bathroom. Dan and all his sub trade team that he organised and co – ordinated, made sure their work was first class. Quotes and estimates for all components were accurate and we had no surprises which was great with “major cost“ rooms such as bathrooms etc. We are looking forward to our next reno plans – kitchen and decking projects being handled by Dan.

Dan listened to our ideas and always advised if he felt there was a better way to accomplish the result. He also advised ways and means where work could be completed more efficiently which resulted in cost savings.... During the course of the project, it became clear that Dan takes great pride in his workmanship and ensures his team of tradesmen follow his lead. Dan showed honesty and integrity with his chargeable hours and he always made sure the work areas were cleaned up after each work day. We have no qualms in recommending Dan and his team's services to anyone that requires a quality professional renovation project completed.
